Old Fort residents allowed to return home

Residents evacuated from the community of Old Fort can now return home after the province lifted the evacuation order this weekend.

Initially issued due to a slow moving landslide that had destroyed the only road leading in to town, the order had been in place since October 7th.

Now, crews have completed a temporary road over top of the destroyed road, allowing the 200 evacuated residents to return home.

The temporary one-lane road has a speed limit of 30 km/h and 15 km/h around bends.

The slide, which had continued to move until recently, had also knocked out power lines and destroyed one home in the community north of Fort St John.
